School Library Journal - Kim Dare

"This series is chock-full of information, presented in an engaging format. The focus is on how and why certain animals form groups. Within that context, readers will come away with plenty of facts about the creatures’ physical characteristics, diet, habitat, social behavior, and predators. While each title promises information on other groups, the titular animal gets the limelight: a couple of others are briefly mentioned in each volume, mainly for comparison. The text is nicely sized and interspersed with captioned, eye-catching photographs. Text boxes offer additional tidbits, including information about human interaction and endangered habitats. Each volume contains a helpful food-web diagram along with abundant back matter. Solid choices for libraries looking for report-writing or browsing materials for middle grade students. -- Kim Dare, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA School Library Journal "Series Made Simple" 11/1/2012" - School Library Journal

"Scattered throughout the south of Africa are communities of meerkats. Author Louise Spilsbury has written a thorough description of life among a colony of meerkats. Each page has a photograph and fact box. Included within the double page spreads is a fact box labeled, “Did You Know?” Other labeled facts boxes that appear regularly throughout the book are “Human Interaction” and “Habitat in Danger.” The final chapters of the book discuss other African mammal communities as a means to compare with the meerkats. Lions, elephants and naked mole rats are the other groups mentioned." - Reading Today Online
